Biography
Jenna Marie McDowell was born on June 21, 1976, in Hayward, California. From the very beginning, Jenna exuded a nurturing and warm energy; a quality that was felt by all who knew her. After graduating from Brigham Young University in 1997, Jenna married her high school sweetheart, Mike, and together they had three children: Ryan, Stella, and Norah. As a devout member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, service to others was always an integral part of her life. From volunteering at her kids’ elementary schools to giving back to non-profit organizations to leading young women's groups at her church, Jenna was a true woman of service.
In 2010, Jenna was diagnosed with stage III breast cancer. She immediately began intensive treatment to fight the disease, including multiple rounds of chemotherapy and radiation. She often didn’t feel well, but it never kept her from her commitment to serving others. It wasn’t out of the ordinary for her to head straight to the school or church to work on community projects after receiving treatment all morning. Her commitment to service only seemed to become stronger as the years went on. Even in 2015, when her cancer diagnosis was elevated to stage IV metastatic disease (cancer that had spread outside the original tumor to form new tumors in other parts of her body), Jenna continued to dedicate her time to various charities and community service projects. Instead of slowing her down, it was as if her personal battle with cancer compelled her to do even more. During the last five years of her life, Jenna was an active member in several community service projects, including fundraising for the Ronald McDonald House; volunteering with Interfaith Community Services, Straight from the Heart Foster Resource Center, and the Escondido Food Bank; and donating to the American Cancer Society, Susan G Komen and Wounded Warrior Homes.
While Jenna never wanted recognition or praise for her efforts, the magnitude of her acts of service radiated to a national level on multiple occasions. In 2017, in the midst of fighting her own battle with a quickly-spreading cancer, her best friend’s four-year-old daughter, Holly Heap (daughter of former NFL player Todd Heap), was killed in a tragic accident. Without hesitation, Jenna got in her car and drove from San Diego to Tempe, Arizona to take care of and comfort her friends. In honor of Holly’s memory, Jenna went on to organize and launch “Hugs From Holly Day”, a day in which she encouraged everyone on social media to “wear pink, share hugs, and spread joy and love through random acts of heartfelt kindness for those in your community.” The “Hugs From Holly Day” event spread far and wide, making it all the way to ESPN’s SportsCenter, where Jenna was recognized for her creativity and heart. Jenna passed away on February 22, 2020, leaving behind a legacy of faith, love, and relentless service. Even after she was gone, her incredible spirit and dedication to service were widely recognized. From the hundreds of people who attended her service, to the memorial grant made in her name by the San Francisco Giants Community Fund, the deep impact Jenna made on this world is undeniable. 
In honor of this incredible woman and her lifelong dedication to serving and putting others before herself, we at the K Club Academy have been inspired to honor our loyal senior students who exhibit this same dedication. It is important to us that our students know that we value and admire the wonderful things they do, both on and off the softball field. Therefore, through this scholarship, our hope is to create a future where all K Club Academy students are inspired to become lifelong stewards of service.
